Youth For Christ's vision, mission, and purpose:
The youth are our future and we want them to feel comfortable in their walk with God without feeling judged. Setting youth on fire for Jesus Christ to actively chase after him and to empower them with the passion and knowledge to take His Word to the farthest corners of the Earth. To be an extended ministry of the church committed and equipped to be or become living examples of Christ.
Our youth ministry was created and revamped to give our youth a voice. We strive to involve our kids and nurture them by relating to them and encourage them by being open-minded. We have been afforded an opportunity to make a difference in at least one child, so we want to make sure our youths’ lives are being touched in an influential and spiritual manner. We have the chance to create and groom a relationship with these kids in order for them to trust us and want to lean on us for support. The art of a true relationship is to love without condition, to talk without intention, listen without judging, to give without reason.
DEVOTING…We desire to know Jesus in a deep, personal way. Because we believe all that the Bible says about God’s love for us, we want to love Him back by worshiping Him with all our heart, mind, soul and strength.
CONNECTING…We desire to stay strong in this new relationship with Jesus by studying His Word verse by verse. The Bible is God’s love letter to us and it teaches us how to live a life that is pleasing to Him.
BUILDING…We desire to build unity among the youth. Jesus said that people would know you are my disciples by your love for one another. God not only wants us to connect with Him, but also with our peers. We do this by giving special time for fellowship at all our gatherings.
SERVING….We desire to follow the example of Jesus…He did not come to this earth to be served but to serve and to give His life for others. God has given each of us a special gift/talent to serve others with and we desire to develop these gifts among the youth for the glory of God.
REACHING… We desire to tell the world of God’s great love. Jesus told us to go out and share the Good News. We do this by encouraging the youth to reach out to their friends, teaching them how to share their faith and giving them opportunities to minister through outreaches and missions trips.
